Description

These are a great way to teach about light, color, and rainbows. Just look at a light through these Rainbow Viewers and you are treated to a burst of colors. The secret lies in a special diffraction grating which separates the colors of the light into a spectrum of colors. Experiment by looking at different colored lights and different types of lightbulbs. Perfect for looking at holiday lights or fireworks. Made of durable cardboard, each Rainbow Viewer measures 4.3 cm (1.7") diameter. For ages 5+.

I bought those as gifts for second-graders when they did some rainbow experiments. They all absolutely loved them and were very excited! Great product!

Inexpensive way to teach wavelengths of light
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Mar 11, 2016
I used these to teach characteristics of light to first graders. My granddaughter's teacher told me they were studying light. This is one of the few companies were you can buy a classroom set of rainbow peepholes for a reasonable price. The children were excited to discover that white light was actually composed of many colors. We also compared the colors to a rainbow. ROY G BIV. Have fun with science!

This product will support your students' understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)*, as shown in the table below.

Elementary Middle School High School

1-PS4-2

Students can conduct investigations showing evidence of illumination from an external source such as the Sun.

1-PS4-3

Students can use Rainbow Viewers to conduct an investigation of how different materials affect the path of a beam of light.

MS-PS4-2

Students can use Rainbow Viewers to develop and use a model to describe how waves are reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through various materials.

HS-PS4-1

Students can use lenses to conduct investigations and use mathematical representations to support a claim regarding relationships among the frequency, wavelength, and speed of waves traveling in various media.

HS-PS4-5

Students can use Rainbow Viewers to conduct investigations about technological devices use the principles of wave behavior and wave interactions with matter to transmit.
